Yesterday, Caris got started in her big girl bed. No more crib for you, Caris. We probably didnâ€™t pick the best of nights to get her into a regular bed, since they were also adjusting to daylight saving time as well this weekend. But weâ€™ve procrastinated too long, and I had time to convert her bed in the afternoon.
Caleb and Caris are so different. I was reading back at an old post of Caleb first getting into his big boy bed, and their responses have been much different. Of course Caris has had the benefit of watching Caleb get into his bed for a few months, so that helps.
The first night did not go so well. It wasnâ€™t horrible, but it was good either. We put the kids down around 8pm, which is technically an hour earlier than normal based on standard time. We figured they would take a while to go to sleep, but not as long as they actually took. After multiple times of telling them to stop playing and go to sleep, they finally fell asleep at 10:40pm, over two and a half hours after we put them to bed.
Once asleep, Caris did well. But anything the doesnâ€™t involve her falling out of bed I would consider doing well. She got over the falling out of bed quickly though, for tonight she did it. Weâ€™re about to eat dinner downstairs, and we hear a big thump. Originally we though it was Caleb knocking down the gate like he down earlier in the night, but nope, it was Caris falling out of bed.
We run upstairs and hear her crying. Caleb fesses up.
Caleb: Caris fell out of bed. We were talking and laughing, and she fell out of bed.
Iâ€™m glad Caleb is so willing to tell us what happened now. I hope it stays that way.
